The Financial Services Audit Center is dedicated to helping financial services auditors achieve their professional goals. Whether you are looking to broaden your knowledge base, advance to the next level, or train your newest auditors, the Center, in partnership with The IIA, provides services to fit each need.
Event Calendar will keep you abreast of the latest events, webinars, eWorkshops, virtual symposiums, and conferences tailored to suit the financial services auditor’s need for inexpensive, relevant, and efficient options.
There are many reasons to earn an official
IIA certification designation. Whether it's the hallmark designation of internal audit — the
Certified Internal Auditor® (CIA®) designation — or one of our four specialty industry certifications, obtaining a certification is professionalism defined. The
Certified Financial Services Auditor® (CFSA®) is a valued specialty certification for audit professionals working in banking institutions, thrift/savings and loan organizations, credit unions, insurance companies, security and commodity services, holding and investment companies, credit agencies, financial services regulatory agencies, and other financial services organizations.
Earning your certification is like having a key to the vast world of opportunities the profession of internal auditing offers placed in the palm of your hand. It can open doors you did not even know existed, as the three or four letters that now follow your name will make one powerful statement about the expertise you bring to the table.
